The Israel Ministry of Tourism has prepared a plan for bringing back tourists by the middle of 2021, Ailetravel.net mentions, citing RIA Novosti.
The plan includes adaptation to the Covid-19 era in all areas covered by the ministry’s activities, including marketing, infrastructure, and the tourist experience.
In total, about 850,000 tourists entered Israel in 2020, a decrease of 81 percent from the previous year.
Israel Minister of Tourism Orit Farkash-Hacohen said: “The past year has dealt a severe blow to the tourism industry.
“Despite the difficulties, we were able to implement significant plans that helped the economy during this period.”
According to him, Israel currently leads the world in terms of Covid-19 vaccination. Twenty percent of the population has had at least the first of two injections.
